In this video, I’ll show how you can take a puzzle typically only found in video games and create a touchscreen version that can be incorporated into an escape room. My hope is that you will be inspired to take the concept here and apply the functionality of PySimpleGUI and the Raspberry Pi to create your own “hi tech” escape room puzzles. Stop settling for boring old lock mechanisms!
